It sounds like you have a supervisor (BIOS) password on the machine. You need to use that password to get access.

there is no password writing in the computer , in fact when i enter to bios he asked me about a password , when i type a random one he ask me to repeat again , and he is working only with a empty password
what should i do in this case ?

If it asks for a password, there is a password and it is not empty. If you hit enter instead of the password, you SEE the BIOS in READ-ONLY mode. That is what you have. You need the real password.
